FYI: Apicultur: The Linguistic API Platform

Author: Elena Alvarez

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

FYI Body: Apicultur is a platform for linguistic APIs that process and analyse words automatically and that extract different information out of texts. Some examples of tasks that these APIs carry out include verb conjugation, lemmatization, POS tagging, phonetic transcription, morphological analysis, definitions, synonyms, sentiment analysis, etc. All these functions can be incorporated into third parties applications via these APIs.

Apicultur is also open to anyone willing to publish their own APIs on any language. Those who are interested in contributing with their APIs can contact us in order to participate in the pilot project.
